Darn good... not his best, but certainly not a waste of reading by any stretch of the imagination.

From New York Times bestselling auther J. F. Freedman comes his richest, most enthralling novel yet-a multileveled work of topflight suspence that crackles with wit, tension, and insight into the darkest impulses of the human mind.

It was a little slow in the beginning but I quickly got into it and enjoyed it to the end.

One of the Greatest Storytelling authors ever! It keeps you reading till the last page is read sometimes that is all in one sitting, because it is that good. J.F. Freedman makes the slightest thing such as birdwatching interesting and captivating all while solving a murder mystery. Excellent book!

I listened to this on tape and my husband read the paperback. I thought it was an edge-of-your-seat thriller. My husband liked it, but didn't think it was that intense. It's one of those mysteries where you don't know who is a bad guy and who isn't until the end. I really liked it.

Meet Fritz Tullis, lovable failure. He should be on top of the world. He comes from one of the most prestigious families in Maryland and, until recently, taught at the University of Texas. That all ended when he was discovered having an affair with the wife of one of the university's most generous donors. Now he's back on his mother's land living in a little shack, drinking too much, and indulging in the local women.

But Fritz is also an enthusiastic photographer who spends his early morning hours trying to get rid of a hangover. He takes a small boat to the marshy areas near Chesapeake Bay where he has been watching migrating birds, especially Ollie, a whooping crane (an endangered species) who seems to have lost his way and ended up with a group of sandhill cranes in the marshes of Maryland. Fritz knows that he should be informing a wildlife preservation group about this lost bird, but then the place would be overrun by activists, and there would go his privacy.

One morning as Fritz is watching Ollie he hears a small plane approaching the runway just across the creek. The land belongs to his mother, so Fritz turns his zoom lens towards the plane--and witnesses a murder. That night at his mother's house, Fritz is introduced to the new owner of that piece of property, James Roach, assistant secretary of state. From the moment he meets Roach, Fritz's life is in turmoil. He also meets Maureen O'Hara, the ornithologist from Harvard with the seductive name who just complicates his life further as he tries to keep Ollie's presence a secret. But in Bird's-Eye View nobody is quite who they seem to be, and the reader is kept in suspense until the very last page. --Otto Penzler --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
